Trump:The Unprecedented President
Wednesday, March 29, 2017 | 5:30 PM Reception | 6:00 PM Lecture
The Varsity Room at Rice-Eccles Stadium
The United States has never had a president like him: a multi-billionaire businessman with no previous government experience, the oldest first-term elected president, twice divorced, and a television showman. Trump captured his party's presidential nomination from 16 other Republican rivals, lost the three presidential candidates' debates seen worldwide, trailed in the public opinion polls up until general election night, and won an election nearly all of his supporters expected him to lose.
The day of the lecture, March 29, 2017, is the 68th day of the Donald Trump presidency. Every day his name dominates news reports. His supporters praise his forceful actions, and hope he can deliver on his campaign promises. His critics fear he is weakening the nation, and many are considering impeachment. As Americans and Utahns, where do we draw the line between taking him literally and taking him seriously? Wherever, factually, undeniably, Donald Trump is "The Unprecedented President."
The lecture is free and open to the public, however please RSVP.
Our lecturer will present an objective lecture and lead a discussion on the 45th presidency- please come with your questions!
